Where did you get the notion that it was deviant behavior? Where did the culture get it?
I don't disagree with Skom. It's been my experience that people in a particular setting or society, in which those people happen to be the majority, will view the minority with suspicion and quite often, ridicule.

Homophobes have a crutch to prop up their bigotry. We call that the Bible. I see that mostly from people born before 1980. The rest of it is just fear based on what a majority views as abnormal.

We've discussed this before, I think. The view of a white, heterosexual male with all his limbs and no known mental issues vs. the view of an Asian, homosexual female with one leg and a few stints in the "special house". I've been singled out for ridicule by the majority on all of those aspects of my life. That includes being female. I see more people stare and whisper when I walk through the mall on my crutches than I do when my prosthetic is covered by jeans and I'm holding hands with my girlfriend.

Just to reinforce the earlier discussion on types of moral theory for those interested, you are now comparing denotological ethics - rule based ethics - which considers obedience to a categorical imperative the highest good, and virtue ethics, which judges the morality of an act by motivations and intentions. The third category was consequentialism, which judges the morality of actions by outcomes.
"Categorical imperative - an unconditional moral law that applies to all rational beings and is independent of any personal motive or desire."

Interesting I had been meaning to work my way back to your first post on that. I think these different systems deserve study. I personally think each system has some good ideas and could be pulled to form a justice system whose actual goal was to see justice done. Not simply protect the status quo or make money or punish but actual justice
I'm glad that you were intrigued by that. These philosophical constructs are a useful way to view moral theory and to classify the various proposed systems.

Yes. It's flagrant discrimination.

There are tests for blood borne pathogens. HIV/AIDS is just one of those.

A baby is a very young child.
Your child can be a "kid" to you forever, but he's no longer a baby once he becomes a toddler. There are stages of development: newborn, baby, toddler, child.
A parent should never--I repeat--NEVER--strike a baby; hit a baby; lay a hand on a baby. Not for any reason. One does not use corporal punishment on a baby. We can disagree on spanking in general, but we're talking about a baby here.
We can continue do discuss this if you like.
If you want, sure. But what'd be the point? You know my approval of corporal punishment and I know your opinion of it.

Neither are likely to change.

So we can debate it, but that'll likely just lead to name calling and childish bullshit.

You don't want that, do you?

So when you said that "a son" isn't " a child" defending your Bible's instruction to kill disobedient children.That was a lie ?
Another lie you are caught in by your very own words.
No lie. The Bible says son, not child.

There's a difference.

Even at 50, you're a son.

I know you won't understand.

You stand against freedom of religion and the US Constitution. If we do not have a choice then we’re not free.
